painful feeding after 4 weeks
I've been breastfeeding my son for 4 weeks. He's had his tongue tie snipped which helped early latch issues and he's now gaining weight well. For the last couple of days feeding has been very painful on the left side and i now have a crack in nipple. Every nursing position seems to hurt and he has a very strong suck so let down is very painful. Can anyone suggest anything? I'm going out of my mind!
Re: painful feeding after 4 weeks
Welcome to the forum and congratulations on the new baby and on making it through the first 4 weeks, especially with a tongue-tied baby!
Can you tell us a bit more about how nursing feels, about when you have the most pain, what the pain feels like (more stabbing, or more burning?), and what the crack looks like?
